SSL Native™ Vocalstrip 2


https://youtu.be/RRambEQAP7A

One Stop Vocal Processing.
The fast track to a professional vocal sound.
Vocalstrip 2 is an application specific plug-in that draws upon decades of SSL professional engineering expertise to combine the right four processing elements to create the simple route to professional vocal recordings. Combining EQ and dynamics sections with essential vocal processors, Vocalstrip 2 aims to bring power, character and clarity to vocal tracks from a single interface. Vocalstrip 2 solves the challenges of producing great vocal recordings with four processing tools carefully selected and calibrated to deliver great results every time.
Key Features
• 4 selected vocal processing tools with a unique SSL twist
• Comparative analysis & dynamic envelope based De-esser
• Comparative analysis & dynamic envelope based De-ploser
• 3-band SSL EQ with High-Pass, 'asymmetric notch' and 'air' bands
• Compander featuring compression, downwards expansion and output drive
• Informative visual feedback showing EQ curves and real time FFT overlay


SSL Native™ Drumstrip
https://youtu.be/qlGD2qGRDyQ

Clarity, punch and power for your drums
The simple path to better drum tracks.
The secret to making an average drum recording sound incredible can be elusive. It takes the right combination of processors, with the perfect sonic character, in the correct configuration and tweaked in the right way. Drumstrip takes drum sounds from ordinary and average to vibrant and exhilarating in a few quick, easy steps.
Plug in, switch on and experiment. Drumstrip handles the hard part; putting the right selection of fantastic sounding processing tools in your hands in an instant. With Drumstrip, DAW users can attain increased presence, clarity and detail in their drum tracks; reduce spill in individual tracks; restore natural brightness; achieve greater perceived loudness; shorten or lengthen the attack and sustain of percussive signals; tighten up booming toms; make kicks and snares stand out in a mix; and parallel compress room mics.
Key Features
• Carefully selected collection of five audio processing tools
• Transient shaper with Transient Invert to bring the attack phase of your drums to life
• Transient Shaper Audition enables you to isolate and monitor the effect of the Transient Shaper
• Dedicated drum Gate with range and independent open and close threshold controls
• High Frequency Enhancer to invigorate top end
• Low Frequency Enhancer to improve bass frequencies
• The classic SSL Listen Mic Compressor with additional bypass function to alter the legendary band-limited compression to full range compression
• Adjustable processor order—because a different processing order is required for different types of drums
• Input & Output Level metering with additional RMS meters

It's definitely a cool looking little interface.

I almost bought one to use for mixing and editing in the hotel room while on tour. But I went with an Apogee One instead because it's even smaller and more compact.

if anyone buys one and already has or doesn't want the vocalstrip duende plugin, let me know and i'll buy it from you for the sale price (which only seems to be once a year now so you get cash and I skip the line), 50 bucks.

These look pretty nice for the price.. I wonder if they are class compliant or have a decent driver.. class compliant stuff sadly can't report the real latency of the device nor include the adda conversion in what is reported to the DAW, so i always prefer a nice accurate fast driver if possible. I wonder which way SSL go.
Still, cheap and travel friendly.



(I still have my mbox 3 for that but we know that there'll be no Catalina drivers so it's time is up).
